The 29th Annual French Festival in Santa Barbara!

Mark your calendars for July 15 & 16: French Festival in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara has a rich history of outdoor festivals celebrating various cultures.  Through the years, in addition to Old Spanish days there has been the Greek Festival, the Italian Festival, Jamaican Festival and so many more.  In 1988 long time Santa Barbara resident and Francophile, Steve Hogerman, turned his passion for all things French into the Santa Barbara French Festival. Come join us for the 29th Annual French Festival in Santa Barbara in July 15th and 16th.

Each year more than 10,000 people from Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and beyond attend the French Festival.  Learn how you can have a booth and gain access to this wonderful audience.
